It's Raining, It's Pouring

Predictable Weather Is So Boring

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


We've had some very welcome rain today, and with it a spell of cooler weather as well. A couple of days ago it was so warm that we actually had the cooling on at home, but the temperature has dropped back down today. A few of the lawns were starting to looking a bit brown, so the rain will do us all some good. Our catchment areas were below 30 per cent some months ago, so Melburnians are always happy to see rain clouds. This shot is of an umbrella as it was left to dry, hanging from a doorknob. Unusual angle. Nice range of colours. Perfect opportunity for a photograph, don't you think?

Glad to hear you guys got some much needed rain. We were in the same situation over our summer. I think I can only remember a total of less than 10 times it rained over the summer months.

I like the colors of the umbrella, nice angle too!

Pretty colours on a rainy day. :-)

I almost got a pink umbrella last Friday when I was caught in a downpour without one. Then I went for magenta tartan.

Well seen and captured. After no rain this summer it seems to rain here everyday.

Hi David
I'm following your lead and am taking a closure look at things through the viewfinder.

Hi...I noticed that you stopped by my blog. I love your photography. I am a wanna be photographer, mostly taking pictures of my family and dogs. I'll stop by again.

Nice photo. Shame we can't redistribute somehow. We had LOADS this summer, but the autumn is turning out drier.

Love the colours David.
Yes a perfect opportunity to snap away!

Congrats on finishing the novel!

Much needed rain is falling and it is (finally) cooler here, too—and I’m on the other side of the world from you.

We'll trade you a little of our Oregon rain for some of that dry weather and sunshine. Deal or no deal?

I love this angle shot. I wouldn't have thought to shoot it. Its the artist's eye.

We got a little much needed rain here as well.

That is one tough looking umbrella you've got there ;)
